Last winter some friends and I went walking in some mountains, and it was a walk I will never forget. We are all experienced walkers: we are all able read a map and use a compass, but we found ourselves in trouble. It was a beautiful day and as we walked we can see all the other mountains around us very clearly. It was very still and silent: the only sounds we could hear were our boots in the snow. The weather forecast was good, but weather forecasts could be wrong, so we had brought warm clothes and our mobile phones, in case of an emergency. We had reached the top of the mountain and were coming down when we noticed some clouds coming towards us very fast. This meant that a storm was on its way so we began to hurry. About ten minutes later Nigel suddenly fell over and shouted out to us. He'd hurt his ankle badly and he couldn't puts any weight on it. He couldn't walk at all. Paul said, 'We couldn't stay here. The storm will be here soon'. So Nigel put his arms on Paul and Mark's shoulders and they helped him down. We could continue like this for about half an hour but then the storm hit us. We didn't see anything because the snow was so thick. We decided to stay where we were. We could find a sheltered place to wait and we phoned for help. We were able to tell the mountain rescue team where we were and that Nigel was injured. Nigel was very cold and tired and he didn't able to speak much but we could keep him awake. We gave him some more clothes and managed keep him quite warm. The rescue team came an hour later. They could carry Nigel off the mountain on a stretcher and take him to hospital. It was a great relief to see him later sitting up in bed smiling!

fever. Hay fever is an illness caused by pollen, a kind of powder from flowers and plants. The more pollen in the air, the greater the chance of hay fever. People who have hay fever often have red eyes and sneeze far more than normal. Living with hay fever can be very difficult. Some hay fever sufferers move to a different part of the country rather than live with the problem any more. They feel that the sooner they are free of hay fever, the more comfortable their lives will be. Others decide to take drugs to fight the problem. However, most drugs aren’t very effective and they only make things slightly better. Also, some research shows that the more hay fever sufferers use these drugs, the less effective they are. Sometimes drugs make things no better, and they can make symptoms worse. Perhaps nature has the answer. Some hay fever sufferers find that their symptoms get a lot better if they eat green vegetables, which have vitamin C. Others find that the more soya milk, onions and garlic they eat, the better they feel.
